i will just save those questions for her. >> thank you. >> mr. mauer, will your department have sufficient budget to maintain the new trees? >> so the unique thing about this particular park is half the trees -- it's a city block, so two streets are actually maintained by rec and park and our staff will maintain the trees after we put them in. two of the other streets i believe steiner and ellis are part of the dpw infrastructure and i say that in quotes a little bit because it's recreation and park garden staff maintains curb to curb in those instances. the true responsibility relies in two departments, but the reality is that parks and recreation garden staff will maintain the trees overtime. this is part of the clean neighborhood, $3.3 million to address this and other park improvements. >> thank you. >> good evening commissioners carla short, department of public works urban forestry. i don't really have anything to add to what dan said, but we did indicate this trees a tree appropriate for removal based on the recent limb failure and the presence of decay already. we'r
with her. i think mr. wolff would provide an excellent perspective on the market-octavia cac as i mentioned, i work with the cac frequently and i think he would bring a terrific perspective. i also think the lgbt center, having the center directly connected into the cac makes a lot of sense as we have more development in that part of market street the lgbt center is going it play a more and more significant role in the community so i think it makes sense to have someone from the center on there, which is why i was excited when mr. wolff applied. i think he does work with low income people, the center certainly works with an enormous number of low income people in the lgbt community and otherwise and i also want to respond to a point that supervisor kim just made about what qualifies as low income. this is a debate we have had in the past. but just to be very, very clear, under 80 percent of ami under san francisco law, state law and federal law is considered to be low income. the federal housing act of 1937 defines 80 percent or under 80 percent as low income. california uses the

was assigned to follow. her name was mrs. bank and she is in the opening of the book. she really didn't want anything done for her cancer, which had spread all over. the doctors clearly wanted to do something. they essentially bullied her or talked her into it. they overstated the benefits and understated the risk, something we know from research happens-especially'll those that do procedures. is just didn't seem right to me. it seemed as if this profession wasn't telling the truth. it seemed as if the profession ol' medicine has long trade from its original mission and heritage. it's not why i went into medicine, and i, quite frankly, quit. i started school at public health where i met david bates. >> host: you were in medical school and you decided you had had enough and you went to school of public health? >> guest: yeah. i basically explained what mrs. banks wanted at our morning con fresh. they tore me upside-down for explaining to them that she didn't want the procedure done. they basically implied, didn't matter what she wantses. this is what she needs. and this was to me a sign of a
greatly. they are senator kay bailey hutchison and senator scout brown. mr. president, in her marvelous book entitled "american heroines: the spirited women who shaped our country," senator kay bailey hutchison wrote the following: "no history can be written appropriately without acknowledging the part women have played in building the greatness of our country. end quote. as my valued colleague and good friend begins a new chapter in her life, i hope that she finds the time to add a new chapter to her own book, one that will be fascinating, inspiring, and auto biographical. like the women that kay celebrates, says an author from amelia earheart, from sally barton to condoleezza rice, kay bailey hutchison is a pioneer, a breaker of barriers. in the special election of 1993, the people of texas made her the first woman to represent them in the united states senate. in the three regular elections since then, they have confirmed their trust in her by ever increasing margins. as the leader of the senate commerce committee, kay has been a strong voice for transportation systems, better, effic
very much, mr. president. i do want to thank supervisor kim and her staff, who have been working on this for quite some time. i also want to thank the members of the community who have also been advocating for the city, providing additional funding to the school district. you know, i've said this many times before, you know, that i do believe that we, as city government, have an obligation to support our public schools because we do have a situation where our federal government and our state government are failing our kids. they are not providing the level of funding that is needed for us to have the kind of world-class public school system that our children deserve. and in san francisco, a city of great affluence to the extent that the federal and state governments are not stepping up to the plate, we have historically, as city government, done that, and that's why we have created things like the rainy day fund and prop h. this has been very clear from the beginning. but one thing that i did raise last time, and i want to make sure that on the record i get some assurances on, is
asking her to commit for events for 2013. the state department has literally said no to everyone. her aides have said don't even try. come back to us next year. she needs time to rest and relax. now, mrs. clinton in interviews has joked about putting her feet up and watching reality tv. but, in fact, she has a more serious set of questions to contemplate. because there is the simple matter of what do you do all day if you're hillary clinton and you don't suddenly have a huge important job to do. she wants to do things like write books. she wants to work on behalf of women and girls. she wants to start to enjoy her life. but the trouble is that it is very hard to make those smaller decisions like what sort of book to write until she makes the big one. because if she's going to run for president, she has to write a very careful book. sort of setting out that possibility. if she wasn't going to run, we could finally read the hillary clinton has seen it all book that some day she might like to write. >> nothing that could be used against her. a new george washington university/politico ba

to change. jody canter wrote this in "the new york times," mrs. clinton may find that her freedom comes with one huge constraint. the more serious she is about 2016, the less she can do, no frank, seen it all memoir, no clients, commissions or controversial positions that could prove problematic. now, i'm one of the so called smart guys that david was talking about. i think she is going to run. i think she wants to be the first woman president of the united states. she's going to have to be cautious in what she does over the next year or two. >> any candidate has to be cautious. >> well, if she's never going to run for office again, she doesn't have to be cautious. >> she's well known. people know her across the board. there are a sizable number of republicans who like her. the reason why people like her is because they know she's a principled person. somebody who believes in human rights. equality of all people. she'd make a terrific president of the united states. i don't think she has to be confined by those limitations miss canter wrote in her article. >> the problems we face in 201
